moon landing can be a fiction

Icons seriously harms you and others around you

Questioning facts seriously harms you

Moon landing can be a fiction

Capitalism causes starvation

Worshipping the wrong master seriously harms your soul

Protect children: don't make them breathe your crystal meth

Rebellion can kill you
Information control reduces your privacy


Well . . . How did I get here?

The Rolling People

"Got a job for you, Bob.  Grab your roller."

TRP, The Rolling People, have featured here before. According to Street Art London they are Scarce, Seks, Cept, Brk, Snoe, Egoe and Aziz.

Here's a few pieces, in and around Sclater Street, EC1.




Now, here's one that was there this morning but gone now.  Last time TheCornPoppy featured a man with a roller and a can of paint Art was being created.  This time art was being destroyed.  

Not sure why.  Elsewhere in Sclater Street this afternoon there was a Chinese/UK film crew using a TRP piece as a backdrop . . . and on the other side of the tracks a fashion shoot was taking place in front of some more TRP pieces.


Let's watch an artist at work then.

Looks like a Dscreet owl there too.

Tickleford Gully Art Show

welcome back my friends 
to the show that never ends

Tickleford Gully Art Show is now open (Closes promptly at 5:00pm).  
Refreshments available.

 The Corn Poppy's silly sisters

The Unders 10s Portrait Painting Competition was won by Charlotte - can you tell which one was hers?  An appointment with the school psychologist has been made for Harry (can you guess which one is his?).

A world big enough for Andy Warhol and Jean Michel Basquiet is big enough for the Tickleford Gully Silver Surfers Art Group.

Henry Perky (above left) was disqualified for plagiarism, judges feeling that his picture of the window of the village pub relied heavily on the entry from Lionel Bloom (above right).  Can't see it myself, but, then, I'm no judge.

Lighthouses featured heavily in the landscape section, mainly because they're striking looking and relatively easy to paint - it's just a red strip, then a white one, then another red one and a poiny bit on top.

In the abstract department "Cakes for cancer" (above) was walkaway winner.

Winner of the Tickleford Prize was "Two Tiny Selves" (above).  Subtitled "(sleeping, side by side)" it caught the mood of the room perfectly.
